This show really shows off Broadway at it’s best.

Did you know the performers who are nominated do a dress rehearsal at 9:30, which got out at 1:30, then a matinee at 2, then the Tonys! Long Day!

Lines went up and down and around two city blocks waiting to get into Tony Awards dress rehearsal. And that was for those who had tickets.

A Tony worthy of King Kong

Thank-you to the amazing Pat Addiss
